Nobel Prize winners urge Congress to ensure public access to federally funded research results
From the Alliance for Taxpayer Access November 10, 2009 press release:
"For America to obtain an optimal return on our investment in science, publicly funded research must be shared as broadly as possible," is the message that forty one Nobel Prize-winning scientists in medicine, physics, and chemistry gave to Congress in an open letter delivered yesterday. The letter marks the fourth time in five years that leading scientists have called on Congress to ensure free, timely access to the results of federally funded research - this time asking leaders to support the Federal Research Public Access Act of 2009 (S.1373).
The Nobel Prize-winners write:
As the pursuit of science is increasingly conducted in a digital world, we need policies that ensure that the opportunities the Internet presents for new research tools and techniques to be employed can be fully exploited. The removal of access barriers and the enabling of expanded use of research findings has the potential to dramatically transform how we approach issues of vital importance to the public, such as biomedicine, climate change, and energy research. As scientists, and as taxpayers too, we support FRPAA and urge its passage.
